    We worked with Blake at the Touchstone Group to manage our condo rental with a very difficult tenant.  Blake made everything super easy, and was able to find common ground with the tenant to salvage the relationship and keep the condo in great shape.  As a property owner living out of town, it was such a relief to have our condo in good hands!
